The Estate (BSN + Dutch Schools)

The stunning listed building was completely renovated, remodelled and modernised in 2014 and is now recognised as one of the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly listed buildings in the Netherlands. With over 3000m2 of natural landscaped gardens – designed specifically for the different age ranges of the children in our care – this really is a childcare location to envy others.

The Estate location provides fully English-speaking and bilingual (English-Dutch) After School Care groups and is attended by students from the Vlaskamp location of the British School in The Netherlands. As well as students from some of the local Dutch schools in the Benoordenhout area. Contact our planning & customer services team via [email protected] or 070 2002375 to discuss the potential possibilities for your child.
